Botany Core game

Perilous Perfunes Expansion

Tantalizing Trees Expansion

Take on the role of a plant hunter in the Victorian Era as they travel the world in search of fame, fortune, and the coveted Queen’s Prize in Botany. 

Each turn, players will move around the board to the locations designated on the Specimen cards in their hand. While they travel the globe, each player will need to manage their expedition funds, overcome events, and acquire items, crew, and pets to help them along their journey. Each time players return to their estate, they will add their live and pressed specimens to their garden and build garden features such as orangeries and conservatories. The player with the most points at the end of the game earns the Queen’s Prize in Botany and is the winner.

Unique Characters and Entertaining Events

Botany’s characters and events paint a story as you traverse the globe to become the ultimate flower hunter. The lives of Victorian plant hunters were filled with adventure and danger. While some of the game's events may seem too far-fetched to be true, they're actually loosely based on real-life occurrences. For instance, some plant hunters were forced to eat their leather boots to survive, and some even kept hawks as pets (bears as pets…maybe). Additionally, they faced the risk of accidentally poisoning themselves with newly discovered plants.
